Oliver Laric, a post-contemporary drive

Oliver Laric was one of my primary choices for the first edition of The New Art Fest (2016). Unfortunately, production issues made the presentation of his download-free artwork, Yuanmingyuan 3D, impossible. I invited Oliver Laric to show his work in Lisbon, but I am still awaiting his feedback.

The artwork of this Austrian artist corresponds perfectly to my notion of a post-contemporary condition, which takes time as an immaterial, non-anthropological dimension. Post-contemporary time is computer-time, working either with digital or quantum bits. Time becomes a dimension in space.

The consequences of this expansion of pre-modern (sun clock), modern (mechanical clocks), and postmodern time (collapse of time as ideology) are a singularity in human anthropology.

Time to update or review his work, namely on his official website; and Instagram.
